The Lazy 15 Challenge - Gradient

It's the second day of an exciting new challenge hosted by Totally Nailed called "The Lazy 15" named as such because we're too lazy to do a whole 31 days!

Today's challenge is Gradient which like the first day's challenge is yet another first for me.  This is what I really enjoy about these challenges is doing something you've never done before and achieving a not too bad result.

Now, I'm participating in a lot of challenges at the moment so if I can use one mani to revamp another then that saves me a lot of time and thinking!!  So I used my red mani as the base colour and added two colours on top, pink & turquoise.  I've seen the gradient tutorials so off I go to the cleaning cupboard, get out a new sponge/scourer (you know the one's you get from the pound shop for about 24!) dolloped a bit of each colour polish onto a piece of paper, dabbed the sponge onto the polish and then my nails, well......easy peasy lemon squeezy!  

A lot easier than I thought and for my first attempt, not bad, if you haven't done it give it a go, it's good fun, easy, simple, effective, as ever onto the pics........

I got these polishes from my local market for about £1 each, they're really sparkly unfortunately my camera doesn't pick up the sparkle, but honest....they are!!!
